This book is the last volume of final reports on the excavations at Tel Anafa by the University of Missouri and the University of Michigan between 1968 and 1986. Tel Anafa is at the foot of the Golan Heights in the Upper Galilee of modern Israel.

Includes studies of several categories of finds from the excavations: pottery of the Bronze and Iron Ages, imported Attic pottery, medieval pottery, jewellery, equipment related to textile manufacture, figurines, and the stucco wall decoration that inspired the name of the site's main structure: the Late Hellenistic Stuccoed Building (LHSB). The variety of the finds, coupled with the clear chronological context and careful recording techniques employed by the excavators, have made Tel Anafa extremely valuable to all those interested in the Hellenistic world, providing a rare opportunity to study Greek culture in direct contact with Phoenician. Indeed, for many bodies of Hellenistic material, Tel Anafa serves as a typological and chronological "type site," presenting a broader and more closely dated range of material than ever before possible.
